SYNTHESIZER 1976.

Post by Andrey » Wed Oct 13, 2010 10:45 pm

Hello!
I'm interested in one record in september 1976. Synthesizer was used. I made this piece of audio recording.

http://narod.ru/disk/26076527000/SINT-1976.mp3.html

1. Amazing sound. Polyphonic organ. Shots.
2. Interesting sound goes along the entire song. At 2.05 synthesizer.
3. Polyphonic synthesizer.
4. Arpeggiator?
5. Sound very interesting. Ribbon controller was used perhaps.

What a synthesizer was used for this record?
Thank you in advance for your reply.

Andrey.

That was... interesting...

I don't think that was a synth, maybe some tape manipulation.
Like, maybe someone playing a short clip of another song, and then letting it slow down quickly.

There's definitely organ in there though.

I think this should be in Buyers Guide.....?...? :roll:

But that was DEFINITELY a MemoryMoog. But you'll need two to replicate that exact sound. Good luck ;)
bonne chance

I'm sorry, I do not know English.
I realized that the synthesizer is similar to Memorymoog. But Memorymoog was released in 1981.
A disk LP with this recording was sold in March 1977 in France.

Oops, I'm sorry, I meant the PolyMoog. Got confused there. The ribbon control parts may have been the MultiMoog.

The synth in the second half of the clip REALLY sounds like a Prophet 5

Yeah, I realize I worded that poorly, but your reply to me didn't make sense. It seems like the guy might be interested in buying this synthesizer.

That is a CS-80 with the ribbon.

This entry was initiated in September 1976 in Canada. Yamaha CS-80 did not exist.

The sound from the 4.02 looks like a ribbon controller, but getting too precise in the notes. The sound also seems to Ondes Martenot and theremin. The timbre is very interesting, floating, flying. Downward legato inert.
I do not know what to think. Perhaps, too, with a tape recorder operations. But what then was taken as a basis?
Strange sound ...

You also said it was released in France in 1977, but the CS-80 began production in '76. It could have been this. Precise note control may have been a talented theremin player with external effects processing.
